Jodi Bieber presents at World Press Photo Awards Days

Jodi Bieber was the last to present her work last night before we all went off for the official launch of the 2011 World Press Photo exhibition at Die Oude Kerk. She presented her work on Challenging Stereotypes and on Soweto. She also discussed her award winning picture of Bibi Aisha a young woman from Afghanistan who had her nose and ears cut off by her husband’s family.

He is now the Picture Editor at the recently resurrected Zimbabwean newspaper, the Daily News and is on his way to Oslo, Norway to present a photography course.
